A 3,800-year-old mummy from China, known as "The Beauty of Xiaohe", dating back to 1,800 BC, is displayed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in Texas August 17, 2010. The Bronze-age woman, accompanied by a 2,800 year old mummified infant, is on loan to the U.S. for a three-stop tour. The mummies, both from what is now Xinjiang, China's most western province, will be on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science before traveling to Philadelphia.
